Is it legal for a police officer to report DWI to a university?
My boyfriend was recently dismissed from his medical school based on a tip from someone reporting his DWI. Upon reviewing the DWI video, the officer clearly tells my boyfriend that he is going to personally call his medical school and tell them about it because he was being uncooperative with a blood draw. His medical school sat on this information and then blindsided him 8 months later as a reason for dismissal. They even alluded to having knowledge about things that happened in the hospital based on what the officer told them. Are events that happened in the ER considered health protected information? Does this apply to police officers? My boyfriend has not been convicted of anything at this point. It's a shame for him to be 250 k in the hole when he has since dealt with his addiction

You are NOT correct. You have NOT been on deferred adjudication. Under Texas law, it is not legal to get deferred...
Can a failed breathalyzer test come up in court if I was not charged with a dui?
i got pulled over for making a u-turn when the light was yellow but turning red. I had alcohol in the car and am 18. The cop asked me to take a breathalyzer test just for his knowledge. I failed it but only got charged with a MIP. This is my first offense, should I just pay the ticket and do the community service to get it off my record? Will the failed test come up even though it is not on the ticket and I was let go?
Impossible to know without going to court and seeing what you're being charged with. You can either hire an attorney...
Can State of Texas report on my Texas driving record that I got a DUI in Texas even though I got it in NY state last year?
I plead guilty to a misdemeanor DUI in NY state in July (2015). I live in Texas and have a Texas DL. I have paid all fees and fines and have settled my case completely as far as NY state is concerned. Just got a letter today from Texas DMV stating I have to pay 3 years driver responsibility surcharges and am getting my DL suspended for three months.
